We've all been there: stranded on the side of the road with a broken down car having been told our recovery service is going to take hours to get to us. Wouldn't it be great if we could flick a switch to make our rescuers appear immediately? We'd be back on our merry way in no time.
Before you jump on the phone to the RAC, unfortunately I'm not here to tell you that this technology is here for your car just yet. But disaster recovery services that do exactly the same for your business communications DO already exist.
As many as two-thirds of businesses admit that although they are an invaluable asset to operations, their telecommunication infrastructure is the weakest link in their disaster recovery plan. Power loss, equipment failure, supplier errors, cyber threats and damaged phone lines can and do happen. Even one day without telephone and internet services can spell disaster for some businesses - yet many don't have backups in place. Can you really afford a loss of connectivity?
In the event of any major problem, you need to ensure your business continues to run as smoothly as possible to avoid any losses in revenue, time and reputation.
Many providers solve this conundrum by offering you the ability to divert calls to mobile phones in the case of an emergency. This is all very well for those who take occasional calls, but does your receptionist or administrator really want to be using their personal mobile all day?
We certainly offer this functionality, but unlike other providers Sirus can guarantee that your desk phones won't stop working in the event of a disaster. If connectivity to your building fails, the call server will kick in and your staff will hardly even notice a difference to phone functionality.
